We've attended all but 1 of the wine dinners, but tonight's with 70 people will likely be our last. There weren't enough servers (they were working so hard) and the kitchen couldn't keep up - our table of 10 had cold and dry food. 9/19/2017

Carrabba's is a fantastic restaurant and we love their food! Our favorites are the Chicken Marsala, Chicken Bryan, Fettucine Alfredo, Prosciutto wrapped Pork Tenderloin. Their Caesar Salads are always fresh and their Bread and Herbs for dipping is always a treat!

Carrabba's used to be a good option for a decent chain place. Not anymore, at least not the one on South Florida in Lakeland. Not on my last two visits. Now it is more like Olive Garden (yuk). The food is not vey good. A...More
